4 Infrastructure Dividend Stocks for a Fort McMurray Fire Rebuild

Enormous Fort McMurray, Alberta wild fires certainly took a toll on Canada’s oil industry as well as the provincial infrastructure

SmallCapPower | May 18, 2016: Alberta’s economy will likely suffer further in 2016 due to the forest fire devastation in the northern part of the province. These fires are also expected to impact Canada’s GDP, as several banks have lowered the country’s economic growth estimates by 0.1-0.5 percentage points for the year. Out of the crisis, though, comes opportunity for companies involved in construction and other infrastructure builds. Already expected to benefit from the federal government’s pledge to spend more on Canada’s infrastructure, the dividend-paying stocks on our list today should receive additional stimulus from Alberta’s rebuild.
